Why did Awori speak so of the late Chango?

Your article “Museveni plane in emergency landing” which detailed the President’s rather eventful visit to Lumino for Chango Macho’s burial, concluded with some “confessions” attributed to Mr Aggrey Awori.
In the first place Chango Machio was not nominated because he failed to present an original diploma or degree certificate, as was required by the law, although he was given every opportunity to do so.
Secondly, there was no road block anywhere in the entire Tororo District, as it was known then. Lastly, the 1980 general elections were organised and managed not by UPC but by the Military Commission, of which Yoweri Museveni was Vice Chairman. Therefore, I fail to understand the motivation for his statements at the time. Was it to impress or please his master?
